The Gardner James Bond continuation novels are finally available in the US in E-Book format.
As Phoebe Taylor at IFP informed me:
"We are delighted to report that 11 of John Gardner’s 16 Bond novels will be available as e-books in the USA on Amazon, Kobo and Sony. They will also be available from Apple at some point in the hopefully-not-too-distant-future.
The available books will be:
Licence Renewed For Special Services Icebreaker Role of Honour Nobody Lives for Ever No Deals, Mr. Bond Scorpius Win, Lose or Die Brokenclaw Licence To Kill Goldeneye
These are the titles that are currently available in paperback in the USA, published by Pegasus. Pegasus are set to publish the remaining 5 titles (The Man From Barbarossa, Death Is Forever, Never Send Flowers, Seafire and Cold) in paperback in 2014, and we will release our ebooks to coincide with their release."
About a week or so ago I wrote an email to Otto Penzler a dear friend and publisher of my late father. Otto and his ebook imprint mysteriouspress.com are publishing in the US The Kruger Novels. I asked Otto if he had a moment if he would like to write something about himself and John Gardner. Let me just say I am so glad I wrote that email. Thank you Otto.

MY FRIEND, JOHN GARDNER
by Otto Penzler
When I abandoned my first career as a sportswriter to become involved in the world of mystery fiction, one of the first important writers I met was John Gardner. It was one of the most fortunate moments of my life. Read more »

It has been a couple of months since an update (Happy New Year All) so we are glad to be back and able to announce that the much acclaimed ‘Generations Trilogy’ is now available at Amazon (UK & US) for the Kindle.
Once again I would like to thank all the JG fans, Lisa Moylett, Corinne Turner, IFP, Swordfish, Orion Books, Pegasus Books, The Book Bond, Sparetimedesign… well you all know who you are. Without you (and the support of my family and friends) this republishing venture would not have happened.
Though the Bonds will be all back out there again it does not mean that we will neglect to update you on things like the Bond e-books, audio books etc. Watch this space and if you do not already 'Like' our Facebook page pay it a visit for the most up to date JEG news.
While I was perusing YouTube the other day I came across a link to Warner Bros. online shop from a Liquidator clip and was astonished to find that finally after all these years and all the 'we will not be releasing this film on DVD' they have made it available, (US only I'm afraid) as a 'made to order' DVD. The site also says that the DVD will be made from a newly remastered version Here's the LINK check it out and if your in the UK give your US friends a nudge and ask for a copy for Christmas. Of course do not forget to order up your Bond re-prints from Orion (Pegasus US) books first!
Slightly old news if you have been keeping your eyes glued to Amazon but The Return of Moriarty is now on sale and The Revenge of Moriarty is ready to pre-order in time for Christmas. Both books are new editions published by Pegasus Books and here at john-gardner.com we just love the cover artwork. You can find them here in the UK.
This update is brought to you by the number five. We are pleased to announce that ORION have published the next five of the John Gardner James Bond continuation novels and they all can be found at Amazon or other good online and offline book stores.
Five years ago we lost JG to heart failure on a beautiful summers day. I have written about this before so I need not go through the details of his death again. What I would like to say on this anniversary however is a huge thank you to all the wonderful people who have shown their love for his writing and especially the 'Bond' fans who accepted his continuation novels for the spirit in which they were written.
It is due to the support and love shown by you all (and you know who you are) that we have been able to bring JG's continuation novels to a new generation of Bond fans. In November ORION will publish the last of the series and this particular journey (apart from sorting US E-Books and we hope more audio books) will be finished. The next journey we hope, is to bring John Gardner's 'other' work out of the shadows and into the spotlight again. We want to show to new and old readers alike why JG was hailed 'A Master Storyteller'. Watch this space and again thank you all for your continued support, it makes what I do with the JG legacy worthwhile
Firstly I would like to apologise for no update in June. Things just got the better of me and I was not able to put together anything in time. So we are now in July and the new edition Orion paperbacks of 'No Deals Mr. Bond' and 'Brokenclaw' are now available to order from Amazon. As sometimes we are a little slow in getting our updates together please check out our Facebook page 'The Complete Works of John Edmund Gardner'.
Here at John-Gardner.com we were saddened by the death of the great British comedian Eric Sykes. For those who know JG's early 'Boysie Oakes' books they will remember that Eric Sykes played 'Griffin' in the film of 'The Liquidator'. For the Gardner family Mr. Sykes will always be 'Griffin', the man who did Boysie's 'dirty work'. Interestingly the character of 'Griffin' was far removed from the sort of roles that Eric Sykes played for the most part. To see a clip of Eric Sykes in 'The Liquidator' follow this link. The man is a legend, may he rest in peace.
Once again thank you for visiting the site and please check back again soon for all JG news.
